Description

Your jeep guide/driver will pick you up from your resort in an open-top jeep and take you on a journey of discovery both on-road and off-road. There will be many sights and scenic stops en route and you will learn many great facts about the island.

The tour will start with a drive through the village of Kiliomenos. Next, the jeeps will continue to take you around mountain villages set in lush landscapes. You will travel through the traditional village of Louxa and stop off in the village of Giri, both of which have been left virtually untouched by modern life.

This is followed by a journey off-road to the Vrachionas mountain range. Be sure to have your cameras ready when you stop at the highest point on the island where you can take in breathtaking views of the whole of Zakynthos. 

Now it is time to head for a stop in one of the villages for lunch at a local taverna (not included in the price).

The route then takes you to the famous Shipwreck Viewpoint, where you can see the boat “Panayiotis” from on high. The next stop will be a visit to the monastery of Saint Georgios Krimnon established in 1535.

Then make your way to the village of Anafonitria, there will be the opportunity for a little wine tasting and sampling of other local products.

The final stop of the day will give you a chance to cool off with a relaxing swim at one of the many beaches on the island.

The jeep safari is a great fun day out not to miss out on. Return to resort approximately 16.00.

Highlights:

  • Explore mountain villages in the north of the island
  • Enjoy breathtaking views throughout the island
  • Many photo opportunities
  • Cool off with a swim

Off roading

Thanks, all well planned. The jeeps picked us up as planned and they even allowed my son ((14 year old) to sit by the car window. Lovely people, driver and the rest of the guests (we were quite happy for that). The tour it self is a very nice taste of seeing best bits of mainland and drive through stunning scenery. Its safe and fun, cool!
